"the washington post" suggested yesterday that you present an obstacle to the passage of gun- control legislation. obviously, you do in a sense. but i am wondering if sort of standard -- the standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation. that is why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, will be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were talking about when they wrote the article, but i will strongly defend the press to write and print what they want, accurate or otherwise. but the fact is -- and i am not suggesting whether this was accurate or not -- but i will point out that i have a track record of getting legislation passed. some will say that nothi

examples of barack obama, and put it up and i'll talk about later in the program. seven examples of barack obama using executive powers, obamacare, he used it on executive appointments, recess appointments, et cetera, and no congressional approval on certain things and now this, now he's bypassing congress. what do you make of that power grab by the president? >> well, first of all, there are 23 of these. some of them the question is why are we doing that. for example, he's got an order to finally nominate and alcohol tobacco and firearms director? really? and mr. president, you shall finally meet your statutory responsibilities of nominating a director. we're going to provide the relevant data for the background check. we need an eo to tell them to meet the current obligations and require federal law enforcement officers to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. why aren't we doing this already? part of it is why are we doing it and why do we have to do it? we're going to tell the centers for disease control to research the causes and preventions of gun violence. is gun violence

of service was ending today, all of the balls began at california's golden state ball. talk quickly turned to the president's tough new gun- control proposal. hours before president obama's official swearing in, california's political heavyweights rubbed elbows in washington, d.c. and talk turned to sweeping new gun- control proposals the president has outlined. >> the american people want gun violence prevention to take place. the president says he will give it his all to make that happen. i don't know what further motivation we could have than what happened in newtown. >> reporter: a recent poll shows that in the aftermath of newtown, more than half of americans support new gun control. we found oakland mayor jean quan here. vice president joe biden urged mayors to act now on gun control. >> oakland and california have these very strong gun-control laws, but i still have teenagers with ak-47's on the streets of oakland, because they can come in by mail. so we really have to have a national law that requires at least id checks and criminal backgr
is shucking and jiving. that's a racial era slave term. >> powell is most likely talking about former alaska governor sarah palin who blasted president obama for his handling of the benghazi consulate attack on facebook writing in part, "why the lies? why the cover up? why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador? on the anniversary of the worst terror attacks on american soil. we deserve answers to this. president obama's shuck and jive shtick with these benghazi lies must end." joining me now cnn contributor and senior writer for, gra l.z. granderson. and will cain. palin defended the remarks saying there was nothing racist about them. was there? >> i'm going to go with no, carol. you know this is always my favorite segment. why are republicans racist? are you racist? tell me again what is not racist about conservatism? it's always the burden of proof to prove you're not a racist, which is a near impossible thing to do. i understand you're not asking me about my personal views. you're asking about a party. i don't know, whatever that is, tens of millions of p
with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills
the government to make sure that president obama understands we're serious. we're talking about whether or not to kick the can down the road. i think mood is that we have come to the end of the road. with that kind of talk from republicans, in the house, will anything get done? >> i think, listen, they have to come up with some kind of agreement. if they don't, in fact, her premonition will come true and parts of the government will shut down. listen. you have an echo of different republican leader that is are out there saying that the theory of a government shutdown would not be such a bad idea and setting this up, trying to desensitize what would otherwise be a pretty calamitous thing for the country and the economy. >> we heard the same thing about the fiscal cliff from progressives on this show saying let's go over the cliff, how bad could it be? >> absolutely. people on the left saying the same thing and what i think is going to happen here is going to come to a short-term agreement and they're going to wait for the president's budget which is due out i think the beginning of febru
. after the ban expired, that jumped from 9% to 20%. colin goddard, can you talk about the impact you think the assault weapons ban could have of president obama succeeds in his push to reinstate it? first, if he could talk about the power of the national rice -- national rifle association. there posting in the months since the newtown massacre, there's been more than 100,000 -- they have had more than one had a thousand members. >> we have also received an inundation of phone calls from people who have never spoken about this senate wanted to get involved in our work. we just met last night in d.c. with every major progressive group that works on policy and they're all coming together around this issue. we are really encouraged to see how many people are coming to us. i don't know the total number, but i'm sure it is comparable to the 100,000 nra got. if we announce we just got over $5 million for people who want to see new policies become law. we have to think about that. when the nra is speaking, they represent a gun manufacturers and the big gun business. they don't represent the
an amount of uncertainty, if you will. just today president obama was talking about what could happen if congress doesn't agree to let the government essentially pay its bills. let's listen. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. >> so the truth is the president and the congress actually have to agree on all of this to end up getting a deal. but the question for you, suze, is what are americans supposed to do during a time of uncertainty? for example, if you're thinking about making a big purchase, should you do it now or wait till the president and the congress figures it out? >> the time has come, in my opinion that americans realize that their future cannot be in the hands of politicians. that their financial future has to be held tightly right within their own grips. and if they don't have the money to buy something outright, if they have to put it on a credit
reform? >> i have a big idea. you've heard me talk about obama 2.0. it's all about energy. it's not about drill, baby, drill. it's about natural gas, shale oil -- these are opportunities to transform america. lots of jobs and things we need. we would be less dependent on foreign oil. i think he's going to embrace it. he's already done it, already given the approval that we can export to folks where we have free trade agreements. that's a home run for him. >> rachel, what are you seeing as being a big ticket piece of legislation the president can get passed and have be part of his enduring legacy? >> immigration reform, i think, has the best chance to get some bipartisan support and become a piece of his legacy. >> susan was saying that. >> we've talked about jobs and how important that is. that's a little bit more -- there are lots of external factors that come into play there, unlike the gun debate, immigration is one where there may be some consensus that can be reached. we saw public soul-searching in the republican party right after the election. if they can they can sustain any momen
talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
the president and mrs. obama looking at bookshelf. they talked about the importance of this day. >> this inauguration, we're going to be -- it's a symbol of how our democracy work and how we peacefully transfer power but it should be an affirmation we're all in this together. >> molly: the vice president and his family participated in the national day of service. they filled care packages for deployed servicemen and women. mr. biden says the troops overseas that we remember them. the area around the washington monument there were opportunities for people that wanted to get involved. they could make cards for foster care children, create a mural, learn how to use recycled materials and more. here is what some of the participants said about the events. >> came all the way from las vegas for the inauguration and a day of service. >> i think it is important because we can take communities back to our community and communities can grow and prosper and pass on all the ideas that we have learned here. >> molly: also participating on the mall, chelsea clinton and delaware attorney gener
left-leaning press today they talk about how -- what the republicans did to president obama in 2011 and what they're trying to do with the debt ceiling, namely attach conditions it their willingness to raise our credit limit by saying you've got to cut the spending otherwise we're not going to do it. it's unprecedented, never done to any president prior to when the republicans did to this president in 2011. >> and first of all, it's nonsense and the funny part is, you know, we've all heard this obama-- speech from obama when he was a senator and says it's irresponsible, passing the buck, it's a crisis of leadership and all the rest. he's since disavowed that position, saying it was a political move, whatever the hell that means. and the funny upshot of that, he's basically condemning the republicans having the courage of obama's conviction, for actually being serious about what obama was just posturing about as a senator. moreover, we've attached in one form or another, it gets complicated, but we've attached conditions on increasing the debt limit ceiling, graham rudman, the bill i
. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would
.r.a. expressing confidence that an assault weapons ban already being talked about in washington will not make it through congress. the n.r.a. is standing by over concerns of a meeting with vice-president joe biden saying the obama administration needs to stop focusing solely on guns and gun owners. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically, that t they would have addressed what will we do in the future. what will we do about a broken mental health system that allows people potentially violent to be on the streets? >> and a liberal think tank weighing in for the first time shall the center for american progress announcing it's joining a full scale campaign to push for more gun control laws. >> the organizations will be working to work in the states, and ensure at that we have the voice and really have the american people and really gun owners who listen to the proposals, their voices at the table as well. >> harris: all of this in the wake of a week long series of meetings hosted by the vice-president as he puts together a plan to curb violence, he says. we expect that plan to be

towards the country's spending limit once again, folks. you know what that means. talking about time to raise the debt ceiling, right? president obama warned he will not enter into another game of brinkmanship as he referred to it over the debt sealing with republicans. >> the issue here is whether or not america pays its bills. we are not a deadbeat nation. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is in fact a safe bet. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. martha: a lot of talk about the president's demeanor at that news conference yesterday. we'll get into that a little bit more coming up but for now does this really come down to an issue of raising the spending limit or defaulting on our credibility as the president has talked about. let's bring in stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. so, stuart, you feel the way he is framing this is incorrect? >> ye
